This isn't the right way to do it; I should have posted my sketches up first to wait for your comments but I had to finish this in time for NYC. Ladies, next time I'll do it right! Or I owe you all delicious tea.
I've been meaning to create an illustration for Valentine's Day. Integrating the theme of patterns made this project more fun and aesthetically interesting. The idea is straightforward - a shish kabob of lovefools struck by Cupid's arrow. I guess the idea is quite morbid if you think about it literally. I tried to avoid it by using a warm and playful color palette.
The patterns are mostly worked into the clothing. But the less obvious pattern would be the arrangement of people lined up next to one another.
So yes, folks.
This process is very different for me since I usually work with acrylics. I just felt like creating a lighthearted, and mostly drawn illustration.
